Wednesday's Local Roundup - Applemen take Cougars in Border War


WINCHESTER, Va. - Ryan Woolum's fielder's choice grounder Tuesday night went from a game-ending double play into the game-winning sequence for Musselman.

Jefferson completed the first half of a twin killing, but threw away the relay throw to first base, allowing Musselman to score the winning runs in a 4-3 victory over the No. 4 Cougars at the Border War Tournament at James Wood High School.

Craig White walked and Brandon Combs doubled to lead off the seventh for Musselman (7-3-1), and Jefferson decided to intentionally walk Danny Karpac. Brandon Conway then got his 13th strikeout for Jefferson to set up Woolum's hit and the ensuing wild play. Wes Kees then stranded the tying run at third in the bottom of the inning.

Sam Walls had two hits and a sacrifice fly for Jefferson (12-2), which plays in the third place game today at 4. Karpac and Chris Bozzi also had RBI singles for Musselman, which plays the Martinsburg-Handley winner in the final tonight at 8.
